Propaganda Posters
Contest Directions: May 1 is International Workers' Day, also known as May Day. This holiday is one of the most loved holidays of Communist and Anarchist organizations and their affiliated unions who celebrate this holiday by organizing marches with propaganda posters. Soviet Union was the biggest country that celebrated May Day with nation-wide parades and propaganda posters. These days May Day is no longer an official holiday in Russia and many ex-communist countries, but remaining communist parties still organize parades on May 1. International Workers' Day does remain one of the main communist holidays in China - celebrated with parades and propaganda posters.
To celebrate the upcoming May Day in a "Freaking News way", Photoshop any old propaganda posters any way you wish. Here are two good examples - poster 1, poster 2. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.

        • Make your additions look like they're painted to match the rest of the poster.
        • Added Dry Brush and Noise. Any advise appreciated. Thank you, Paul.
        • Try using "watercolor" and then fade somewhat. I've used all kinds of tactics including first posterizing, then blurring, levels, dodge and burn and then perhaps some dry brush. Play with it.
        • Thank you, Paul. I will try but can do it PM time.
        • Amazing work after all Artists giving advise Nice work and suggestions Mr. P
        • Now I would use the smudge tool to match the texture of the poster, hidden.
        • Thank you, Paul. I will do it for next poster contest competition. For current I am out of my Photoshop.
        • The mirror addition with Obama's reflection is very clever! Now we know who is offering Vodka to Putin!
        • You did a nice job of making it look like a painting overall. I like the composition and the facial expressions. I might have used "nyet" instead of "no" for authenticity. But that's just a nit. Congrats on a job well done.
